Write Your First Program with Block-based Coding

Summer Camp 2018 (Ages 6-8: Junior)

The image that we have about computer science is seemingly unreachable intelligence. In fact, Computer Science is all about problem solving – how you handle different situations and figure out the best solution to a problem.

Children react to things that stimulate their senses and that’s why we choose block-based coding – we want your child to make more sense of the world around them. Using tools like Osmo and MIT Scratch Jr, we will bring your kids to playful worlds of using simple algorithms to solve puzzles, and to create their own creative games as well.


Key Takeaways:

1. Visual learning: using physical and symbolic objects to teach kids how to program. No crazy syntax, just colourful blocks your child can easily drag and drop.
2. Basic algorithm design: planning and designing solutions to a problem, and understanding how there are different ways to solve a particular problem.
3. Structured thinking: how orders work, and why we put certain things first or second.
4. Debugging: understanding why stuff doesn’t work and how to fix it.

What to bring: iPad or Android Tablet, Power Adapter
